Welcome to the Built in Iowa Podcast!
On today's episode we have Rob Hach from Trusted Energy. Trusted Energy is located in Storm Lake, IA and is a renewable energy developer. Rob started the company in 2002 around wind farms and in 2008 diversified and invested into the solar business. Rob worked at Enron and wanted to go out on his own out of necessity. Rob's father got started in the wind energy business in 1978 and Rob has always had an interest in renewable energy. Trusted Energy has 20 employees and is actively growing their organization. Trusted Energy business model is focused on Commercial and MUSH (municipals, universities, schools, and hospitals) projects.
Rob has stated that it is tough to hire in Storm Lake, but they have been creative and built out a remote team to help them grow for now and the future. Rob literally put his life savings on the line to start Trusted Energy; he cashed out his 401k and his life insurance and took a small loan from his parents. Rob feels strongly about keeping his company private and spinning out renewable portfolios for long term revenue. Trusted Energy has a revenue range between $5 - $10 Million.
